As expected, the new vehicle that Nissan had been teasing is an all-electric crossover vehicle.
Unfortunately, it’s very much a concept and not really a vehicle aimed at production to follow the next-generation Leaf unveiled last month.
Instead, The Japanese automaker has unveiled the “Nissan IMx” all-electric crossover concept.
The vehicle is being described as “a glimpse into the future of Nissan Intelligent Mobility”, the automaker’s latest product vision.
It shows that Nissan is at least working on EVs much more powerful than the Leaf. Nissan claims that the concept is powered by two “high-output electric motors” at the front and rear, giving it all-wheel-drive capability. The dual motors have a combined power output of 320 kW and 700 Nm of torque.
Without specifying the capacity, Nissan says that the battery pack is “high-capacity” with “increased energy density” enabling “more than 600 kilometers (372 miles) on a single charge.”
Here are a few images of the vehicle released by Nissan:
Daniele Schillaci, executive vice president for global marketing and sales for EVs, said about the concept:
“The IMx zero-emission crossover concept vehicle embodies the future of Nissan Intelligent Mobility. Through Nissan Intelligent Mobility, Nissan is committed to changing the way people and cars communicate, as well as how cars interact with society in the near future and beyond.”
Nissan says that the vehicle would be equipped with an advanced version of ProPILOT, the automaker’s driver assist suite, and that the interior design has been driven by the advent of autonomous driving:
